Chances are you own a pet that’s been neutered or spayed. Both spaying and neutering remove all of the normal sex hormone-secreting tissues, but your dog still needs a certain level of circulating hormones for normal biologic functioning throughout life. <br /> Over time, the loss of these hormone-secreting organs takes a toll on your dog’s adrenal glands, as they are the only tissues remaining that are capable of producing these hormones. Now they must do their own work plus the work of the missing organs. It's very difficult for these tiny little glands to keep up with the body's demand. In addition to this extra burden, your pet’s body must cope with the continuous exposure to chemicals, from pesticides to plastics to flame retardants. These chemicals can affect your dog’s hormones in much the same way as spaying and neutering! <br /> How Early Neutering or Spaying Puts your Dog’s Endocrine Function at Risk <br /> Your dog’s endocrine system consists of tissues and glands that release hormones into the bloodstream. A big part of your dog’s hormonal endocrine balance comes from hormones made in the testicles (in males), the uterus and ovaries (in females). <br /> When a female dog is spayed, both her uterus and ovaries are removed. Neutering removes a male dog’s testicles. With either procedure, no consideration is given to the hormones produced by these organs – such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Both spaying and neutering remove all of the normal sex hormone-secreting tissues. <br /> Your dog needs a certain level of circulating sex hormones for normal biologic functioning throughout life. And they’re needed in the right proportions. <br /> When the sex organs and their hormones are taken away from a still-developing young dog’s body, it can affect everything from the brain to the bones. And because these sex hormones are so vital, your pet’s body struggles to get them however it can… Without ovaries or testicles, the task of producing sex hormones falls onto your dog’s adrenal glands. They are the only tissues remaining that are capable of producing these hormones. Over time, this takes a toll on your dog’s adrenal glands. They must do their own work plus the work of the missing organs. It's very difficult for these tiny little glands to keep up with the body's demand. <br /> De-sexing plus these every day hazards can create a double whammy for your Pet <br /> We live in a toxic, polluted world, and that’s especially so for your dog. He or she may: <br /> <br /> Sleep in a dog bed that’s been treated with flame-retardant chemicals <br /> Drink water that’s chlorinated and fluoridated from plastic water bowls <br /> Romp in grass at the park that’s been treated with pesticides <br /> Eat food that’s been treated with chemicals <br /> Eat food packaged in plastic containers <br /> <br /> Surprisingly, these chemicals – a class of chemicals known as endocrine disruptors, which include DDT, BPA, dioxin, PCBs, lead, triclosan, phthalates and arsenic – affect your dog’s hormones as does neutering and spaying. <br /> Just like with spaying and neutering, endocrine-disrupting chemicals, or xenoestrogens can reduce your dog’s hormone production as well as the release of hormones from the endocrine glands. <br /> Because these endocrine disruptors mimic estrogen hormones, they can lead to an imbalance of hormones in your pet’s body. <br /> Combining these two factors – desexing your pet and everyday exposure to potentially harmful chemicals – can create an even greater burden on your dog’s adrenal glands. <br /> <br /> Functional medicine practitioners in the veterinary community, like Dr Karen Becker of Dr Mercola Healthy Pets are big believers in the benefits of balancing sex hormones naturally. Rather than using actual hormones (which can be tricky), Dr Karen Becker likes to use their raw materials to support hormonal balance. This protocol from Dr. Jack Oliver at The University of Tennessee Clinical Endocrinology Service. His protocol consisted of two ingredients that have been shown in studies to balance cortisol and other hormones, while lowering strong estradiol (estrogen) levels: <br /> <br /> HMR (7-hydroxymatairesinol) lignans (from Norway Spruce) – Unlike flax lignans, the HMR plant lignan converts to enterolactone (acts as a “good” phytoestrogen) by gastrointestinal bacteria immediately upon ingestion, and is then completely and quickly absorbed from the GI tract. <br /> Melatonin – This valuable hormone modulates other hormones and promotes healthy cortisol and estradiol (estrogen) levels. Works synergistically with lignans to support beneficial estrogen metabolism. <br /> In addition, based on research Diindoylymethane (DIM) was added for additional benefits. A major active metabolite of Indole-3-carbinol (I3C), DIM is a constituent of cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower. It plays many useful roles in the body, but it’s been shown to promote beneficial estrogen metabolism in both males and females.<br /> <br /> Directions for Use <br />

Purchased this product for our fur baby Molly who is a 13 year old SHIH TZU presenting with symptoms for cushions disease although blood tests where inconclusive. Her main problems are hunger hair loss and muscle waiting. Our vet suggested we try vetoral but 3 tablets in she was vomiting and quite unwell so we thought we would try your products to help with her symptoms and we are only on day 3. Not sure when we might see any improvement but we hope to report back later.

Was worried to start with as dogs skin started itching worse then ever but this subsided after 2 weeks.. poss detox??... the change in my dog is absolutely amazing...pleased to see visitors instead of hiding behind my legs shaking or the other barking constantly... have had the odd lunge on walks but the other day the most amazing thing happened .. we passed two dogs with no lunging!!.. hes reacting less.. spooking less and seem to be weighing up situations rather than just going in straight away.. def worth the money and will continue using

Our 11yr springer spaniel develepod large bald spots on either side of her back around 2yrs ago which progressively got bigger. After several visits to the vets we found this product and gave it a try. Within a month the hair started to grow back & after 6 months has completely re grown. Her urinal incontinance has also improved massively. Very impressed and would highly recommend.

Hi, I've waited a long time to do this review - because I wanted to do an honest review of these products as they are not cheap but I have to say that I can highly recommend them with a big positive YES :0)) ♥ I first bought this product just over 6 months ago along with another Dr Mercola product called 'Dr Mercola Whole Body Glandular Support', as it was recommended on his website that they were taken together. My dog, a Jack Russell, is nearly 16 and she was beginning to get wobbly on her back legs, her urine incontinence had gradually worsened over the previous year and I often used to see her just sort of staring into space with her head slightly tilting to one side, she was getting slow and she was tired most of the time. I started giving her the recommended dosage of each. To cut a long story short - after one week it had given her a new lease of life, people can't believe she is 16, she doesn't wobble anymore, shes alert and once again happily barking her orders at every dog she meets, and although shes not completely dry, her incontinence is at least 50% better than it was. ( at one time she WAS completely dry, day and night, which was fantastic, but that only lasted for 2 months ?). I don't give her these supplements constantly, I break it off about once every 6 weeks for a week or two, but after about a week of not having them she goes back to the way she was before. It proves that there are a great deal of nutrients that our pets need that they are just not getting and if your dog has been spayed its even worse because then she has been without the hormones she has needed since that time - I'm so glad I happened across the products videos on his website which explain what they're about. I thought I was doing a great job of giving her the best dog food I could afford but obviously they need more than whats in their food . In the near future I'm going to try her on the Mercola Bladder Support product as well to see if that helps her better with the wetness more and will give a review of that at a later date. I just have to give this guy 5 STARS for the quality of his products. Thank You

Hi Anne. Many thanks for taking the time to leave such a detailed review about Dr Mercola's Canine Hormone Support. This will really help other customers. I know we have spoken a couple of times and you said that you would review the product, but only after you had used it for a while. So I am pleased that the product has helped.

I use this product as well for Pepper because she is spayed and it has helped her.

Let me know if I can help further. Will be interested to see how Bladder Support works when you try that! Kay
